and talk about how genius it is. it's like, you know, it's just -- it's a cliche on top of a cliche crowned with a cliche. i mean, what am i supposed to say? where should i begin? bipartisanship, okay. the book it's based on, doris kearns goodwin's "team of rivals." >> i know what you think of that book. people point out the parallels between president clinton and our current president. here is a question. what lesson would you like the current president to take from the true lincoln in your view? >> well, look, lincoln did a lot more of the success in abolishing slavery if we're going to talk about the great triumph of the lincoln years, winning the civil war, abolishing slavery, 90% of that was idealism, not compromise. the movie shows us the compromise. i'm from kansas. we fought a war with missouri over slavery, but it was against compromise, that border war. this had been going on for decades and decades. if you ask me, barack obama's great failures are his zeal to compromise. he's always looking for a grand bargain. this is why he wasn't able to defeat conservatives when they were tot
, it strengthened and fortified by this friendship, is seeking to throw off the status quo and cliches, which is to break the chains of underdevelopment and to exercise its demons -- exercise -- exorcise its demons. my administration has been at it along the way, but no one can deny our good faith. this year, in haiti, once again, we have been affected to differing degrees of the tropical tempests of isaac and sandy. once again, the cost has been counted in human lives, in harvests, it in people's houses, and in livestock, which have all suffered, and once again, the international community has been prompt in coming in and stepping up, helping, salvaging, in reconstructing. we must break through this vicious cycle. we must replace it with a virtuous circle. this is what we are endeavoring to do, and this is the effort which will put haiti back on its feet. haiti will find its feet again, because we have taken cognizance of the haitian territory, which is considerable, and it is not going to get better in the years ahead if the climate change continues to bear down on the caribbean islands. we
, talk to your fellow parents. talk to your kids, you know, and i don't mean to over use the cliche, but have the conversation. it is not enough to turn off the news and walk away from the tv and go, oh, that stinks. not this time. >> and it is not just republican, democratic, independent. that is the thing that has just blown my mind. that i feel like it is really not about your party right now. >> it is not, it is not. >> i really feel like it is about our children. so i would say that at this moment, that i -- my gut is telling me that we have to continue to talk about the children. they are the future of this country. and it is going to -- you know, they're going to be the next set of parents. and they would want the set of things we want. protection and safety. and you know. i think that is -- >> you know there are much larger cultural and societal issues here. i -- we can't even begin to address those because they're just so enormous. but you have to start somewhere. you have to start somewhere. and i love the idea that this group has put forward saying that sandy hook, you kn

. not going to use that cliche, not going to say it that's because it was a fake crisis as the "wall street journal" says today in its lead editorial. the deal congress struck last night could have been done last august. but the politicians in both parties wanted to posture it. setting up phony scenarios for their own personal enaggrandizement. here is really what's going on. president obama has succeeded in raising taxes on every working american. every one of us. those who are doing well will now pay close to 50% income to the feds. those making below $400,000 a year will pay a variety of new obama care taxes and see a 2 percentage point rise in their social security payment. everybody gets hit. if you invest, you will be paying about 9 percentage points more in capital gains and tax. if you die and your estate is worth more than 5 million bucks you will pay 40% of death tax to the feds. president obama is not finished. he wants more from the affluent. >> we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. cutting spending has to go hand in hand with further reforms to our tax code. so that the we
's a failure to pay bills, don't look at both sides. none of the malarkey and cliches. will that work its way into news coverage? will people begin to buy the president's shaping of the battlefield? >> well, it seems like that has happened every time. that republicans get more of the blame when we have these sorts of, you know, end of the night deals that have to get made. because they have been doing a bit of foot dragging. so he definitely is laying down the rhetoric. i think one of the things he said in that process conference which i think people will resonate with which is this idea if you go out and buy an expensive meal, you can't when the check comes refuse to pay the bill. he a likening that to a refusal to raise the debt ceiling. it resonates to people who can understand the debate in their own language in some ways. >> glenn, do you think the people in the tea party are paying the bill or not paying the bill or saying yes to spending? the way they look at it. >> i think what they think is they're looking at a different set of polls that say a significant portion of the electorate c
cliches. the republican party wants to stop this government, blame them. will that work its way into the news coverage? will the people begin to buy the president's shaping of the battlefield? >> it seems like that has happened every time. that the republicans get more of the blame when we have these sorts of, you know, end of the night deals that have to get made, because they have been doing a bit of foot-dragging. so he is definitely laying down the rhetoric. i think one of the things he said in the press conference, which i think people will resonate with, which is this whole idea, if you go out and buy an expensive bill, when the check comes, you can't refuse to buy the bill. he is likening that to refuse tolerate the debt limit. it resonates with people and they can understand the debate in their own language in some ways. >> just to check, glenn, do you think people in the tea party think that they're paying the bill or not paying the bill, or do you think they're saying yes or no to spending, the way they look at it? >> oh, yeah. i think what they think is they're lookin
that environment. it becomes cliche' to stand in front of the building every day with your home boys, drinking and smoke a blunt. this is the reality of it. this is what our youth think is the way of life right how. a lot of them don't have the initiative to get out and go find their appointment and this is why we're trying to bring this abroad. >> but violence, specifically, what did you think about it as a way of dealing with someone either doing something to someone you loved or -- >> well, i mean, there was a time when i was a very violent individual at one time. and a lot of times you don't think about what you're doing to someone to hurt them when the thought is in process. it's like if it happens there's a reaction. this is the mentality and now it's even more so with the video games and the kids that sit there all day and play video games and it becomes easy to pull the trigger in the video game and in real life, people think that it's the same thing but it's not because you're dealing with the flesh of of a human life. >> i think it's important. there's a risk here that we put it all

? there was no guarantee we were going to defeat hitler or that britain was going to survive. it has become a cliche, but it has not been said here tonight, so i will be the one to say. my favorite quote from winston churchill, the americans can always be. -- depended on to do the right thing, after they had exhausted every other possibility. the demographics are irreversible and will ultimately drive the right and the left to the reality that we have to make some kind of changes. >> you are our realist. how do you think this ends? >> of course, the honest answer is i don't know. what i worry about, and i really appreciate the reminder of history, because i think is really important, and we forget history too often. what i worry about is the trust deficit. if you look at every institution, business, congress, sports figures, the church -- it doesn't matter what it is. no one trusts the institutions that operate in our country. and congress is not doing so well. >> why does that matter? it matters because, for a society to be vibrant and grow and take risks and innovate, we not only need to like each

. speaker, some might say that saying those things is a cliche. but as we all know, members are going to have to engage with and rigorous debate, and there it is going to be the clash of ideas, a rigorous debate, but it needs to be done with good faith and the spirit of compromise. i realize and some argue that compromise is a sign of weakness. in fact, one of the great strengths, mr. speaker, of our nation's founders, was their ability to compromise. the very structure of this institution, the united states congress, the very structure of our institution, which joined the people's house, where we are all privileged to serve, with the united states senate, was known as what? the connecticut compromise, or the great compromise. that is the very basis of our founders. too often we forget that while we should never, we should never compromise our principles, we must always, mr. speaker, we must always be prepared to compromise in the service of our principles. a couple weeks ago, "the economist" described another example of compromise -- this one that justice brandeis described as "one o

, on the positives. it's a huge cliche to say this, but really happiness resides inside of us, not outside of us. >> here with more on the pursuit of happiness is gretchen ruben, best selling memoir, "happy at home." happy new year. >> happy new year. >> why is it so elusive, happiness? >> it's something we strive for and if we don't get the things we want, it doesn't make us happy, which we expect. things like anxiety, remorse, guilt, fear. these things are big flashing signals we need to change something in our lives. even negative emowings have an important role to play in a happy life. >> when people define happiness, they tend to define it in terms of a perfect life and it can never happen? >> exactly. i think it's helpful to be happier, not achieve some myth iccal goefl a happy life or achieving perfect happiness but thinking today, next week, next month, what can i do to be happier? >> one of the ladies in the piece, one of the women in the piece said sometimes you have to stop and think about what you do have, not what you don't have. i've been through difficult times in my life and ofte
events, even though the audiences are dropping. so you've heard the cliche about analog dollars and digital dimes, now mobile pennies. as more and more of the eyeballs and the audience is going to mobile, the ability to monetize it becomes even more challenging. so facebook and google and a lot of companies have really a great mobile strategy. i'm not sure that the true big dollars are going to be there -- >> they've got to be there at some point, don't they? if that's the way people are digesting content? >> i don't know if you're going to be able to monetize it to the same degree that you were able to monetize it in the old business. >> what does that mean? >> i think what it means is it's a great time to be a consumer. the consumers will have more choices to get their content than they ever had before. they'll have a ball. the question is, even the content owners. it's not quite as easy to just say, well, gee, i have this content and i can then sell it across all of these platforms. you know? the people who are the big winners are the nfl, you know, people like that. what the
